Newton firefighters spray a 2001 Chevrolet pickup truck that caught fire Wednesday in the driveway of a home at 1001 N. Davis St. in Newton.
Newton Fire Chief Kevin Yoder said the truck owner turned the vehicle on, left the air conditioning running and then returned inside his home. When the owner went back to the truck minutes later, the car was smoking and on fire.
Yoder added that his department first received a call of a garage fire and subsequently dispatched multiple fire engines to the scene. Yoder said that normally only one engine responds to a regular car fire call.
